Advanced Medical Simulation: Interactive Videos and Rapid Cycle Deliberate Practice to Enhance Teamwork and Event Management – Effective Event Management During Simulated Obstetrical Cases

Fernando Salvetti, Roxane Gardner, Rebecca Minehart, Barbara Bertagni


This article is about an experiential coursework focused on learning and improving teamwork and event management during simulated obstetrical cases. Effective team management during a crisis is a core element of expert practice. Medical simulation can contribute enormously to enhance teamwork during a crisis, fostering situational awareness and contextual intelligence, as well as cognitive retention of essential steps and procedures to be performed during an ongoing crisis. A crisis management organizational approach known as Name-Claim-Aim is being used � to facilitate crisis management and decision making. Augmented and virtual reality technology (e-REAL) reproduces a variety of different emergent situations, � enabling learners to interact with multimedia scenarios and practice using Name-Claim-Aim in a virtual environment. Subsequently, learners rapidly cycle between deliberate practice and directed feedback within a high-fidelity simulation scenario until mastery is achieved.So far, the early findings show that visualization, if linked in interactive ways to the learners, allows for the better use of the neural processes and for better learning and meaningful behavior change.Non-invasive technologies to monitor patterns of neural activity during the program delivery will be introduced.
